What does "큐 세대" mean?

"큐 세대" is a new Korean word used to describe "a generation of people who are absorbed in the Internet and have little or no interest in politics." The 큐 in 큐 세대 comes from the English work "quiet"; 세대, of course, means "generation," so 큐세대 literally means, "the quiet generation."

If you are interested in learning other new Korean words, there is a list HERE, on the Web site of the National Institute of Korean Language (국립국어원).


  1. Well. yes we do have that site but sometimes it is not quite right for public as well. Sometimes they make all up for clarifying for our language. So don't give haste credit for it. Well, we can refer it thou. :)
